Waldorf Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Nancy Van Ess

A crunchy, sweet and hearty salad of apples, celery, nuts and mayonnaise. This salad can easily become a summer luncheon main dish by adding cooked, diced chicken. You will probably need to add a little more mayonnaise. Another nice variation is halved grapes in addition to the apples, or pears as a replacement for the apples.

Made this based on the ingredients I had on hand. It was a little too sweet for us and would have liked a little more celery in proportion to the apples.
